Why go anywhere else when you can have spectacular weather, beautiful beaches and gently swaying palm trees right here in the UK? Book a stay in the gorgeous English Riviera, where palm-lined streets are home to continental style cafés and bars that lead from the centre of town to the white sand beaches with their warm, crystal-clear waters. Torquay, unsurprisingly, is one of the best UK destinations for a relaxing beach break, with boutique shops and a whole host of restaurants to enjoy during your visit.
Kids love Torquay just as much as their parents and grandparents, thanks to some of Devon’s best attractions for younger visitors. Explore Dinosaur World or the Living Coasts, tour the Babbacombe Model Village or go underground to see the atmospheric Kents Cavern which is also licensed as one of the UK’s most incredible and unforgettable wedding venues.
Torquay has so much to see and do, which means that one short break never seems like long enough. Even in winter there are dozens of amazing indoor attractions to keep visitors occupied, which means that there’s never a bad time to book your hotel room. You can visit Torre Abbey, the Torquay Museum and other historic and educational attractions, all with interactive experiences that make each attraction suitable for children and exciting enough to tempt them away from the beach.
Even walkers will find local tracks and trails that will keep them occupied for days, with Torquay being the perfect base for walking holidays along the South Devon coast. The South West Coast Path is one of the most popular walking routes in England, passing through Torquay and covering 630 miles between Minehead and Poole Harbour. From bustling harbours to rocky cliffs covered with colourful wildflowers, every step will bring something new.
With a choice of Torquay hotels you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for you, whether you’re selecting your accommodation based on its location or on features and facilities such as indoor swimming pools, live entertainment and luxury en-suite rooms. Pick from a hotel near town centre shops or choose accommodation overlooking the beach. Travel with friends or with family, as a couple or on your own, and take advantage of Torquay’s mild climate and the town’s many attractions.
